Win a Copy of Paul’s Triumph

Christoph Heilig is my favourite German Neutestamentlich Aussenseiter and you can win a copy of his new book Paul’s Triumph: Reassessing 2 Corinthians 2:14 in Its Literary and Historical Context published by Peeters.

In his second (canonical) letter to the Corinthians, Paul makes an assertion about his and his co-workers that has led to quite different, even opposing, translations and interpretations: When thanking God, the one who is πάντοτε θριαμβεύοντι ἡμᾶς ἐν τῷ Χριστῷ  (2:14), does he imagine himself as a victorious general (“thanks be to God, who always gives us victory/leads us as his soldiers in triumphal procession”) or as a captive who is led to execution? Or does the imagery have nothing nothing to do with the Roman military at all?

(3) Hope that you win – and if you are kind, share this post with your friends!
